Caption This 32


Please suggest a caption for this image [See below for details]
Laval, QC, August 2006


Our son, Zach, took this picture outside his grandparents' place last summer. One morning, we were walking around the riverside paths, looking for whatever scenes captured our attention. I think he did a deft job of composition on this shot, and I'll betray my bias when I say I'm impressed with his ability to see the story in a simple scene.

Your turn: So what would you call it? Leave a caption (0r two, or more...) in a comment and I'll pick the best one next week. Is there a prize? Not really. But you'll get a big happy from me. And from my future-photographer son. Isn't that enough?

About Caption This: Click here for instructions on how to play. Click here for last week's look into a trash bin at a fast food restaurant. Rob, who pens the brilliantly irreverent Fuquad! blog from Turkey, takes it with this fresh take on fast food: "In a bold move to corner a growing market of pessimistic consumers, McDonald's has launched it's new 'Truth In Advertising' campaign."

I was also tickled by a bunch of other submissions, including these lovelies:
Someone last week said I have some very thoughtful readers and commenters. How true indeed.

Hi Carmi. That's an awesome photo! No wonder you're proud. Again, I have no caption - I leave that to the more clever bloggers that visit.

Just stopping by to say hello while I wait for my daughter to return from a party. Have a great evening!

Wow, great photo.

I offer two suggestions:
"When there is no wind, row."

Or the ever-classic,

"I think we need a bigger boat."

Linda said...

Got Peacefulness?

Rachel said...

"I'm ready to row when you are."

My caption:

"George still hasn't gotten the hang of docking the boat!"

Hi Carmi

Zach did a great job on this shot!

How about "In Drydock"?

Ok, not so funny but it was the first thing that popped in the old head!

"whatever floats your boat!"

Sara said...

the lonely canoe settles in for the winter after a long fun filled summer

John said...

After a long day the canoe decided to dry out dockside--the water turned green with envy.

Not really a caption per se, but it's just what popped into my head.

Great shot. First thing that came to mind is pretty simple I suppose but...."Reflections from the pier"
